Exceptional service combined with top of the line food. Forbes Mill was a delicious steak and seafood experience. When making the dinner reservations, I told them we were celebrating a birthday. They went out of there way to create a special experience for a birthday by providing a special prix fix menu with complimentary Happy Birthday; the entire wait staff acknowledged the birthday and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and sat down. The steak and seafood were cooked to perfection, not to mention the delicious desserts. We are definitely planning another dinner soon!

The wine was exorbitantly expensive. $100 for a half bottle of mediocre cab and I was not allowed to taste. What were they thinking? And the beef was so tough that I felt as if I was a forester downing a 100 year old sequoia...

Not good value. Sea by Alexander or The Fleming’s have much better embience.

Forbes Mill in Los Gatos is our go to dining place for special occasions. They deliver consistently good food, drinks and service. The ambiance is perfect for conversation, unlike many other restaurants where conversation is untenable. Service is impeccable. Will return soon!

Service was slow even though the waiter, Ben was very friendly. Food was HOT and very good. Did not like the fact they stuck us (Table of 5) in a corner by the door that goes to the outdoor seating, especially for the money I was spending and did spend for dinner. Was not my first time at the restaurant. Many restaurants that I go for dinner more than once have my contact info stored and will recognize me when I make a reservation and greet me by name when going for dinner, Hello Mr. Nelson...welcome back. Very surprising for this restaurant and the money....

The steaks were great as usual. We also appreciated that they honored our reservation after we were 2.5 hrs late due to a flight delay for our out of town guest.

This was our first time at this well-regarded steakhouse, and we were not disappointed. Our steaks were impeccably seasoned and cooked, the sides were delicious, and the wait staff attentive but not overbearing. Because it's so pricey, will only likely return for specials occasions. I'm looking forward to our next special occasion!

Poor service, food was over cooked also my daughter in law called with birthday wishes for me and left a credit towards our bill and they never told us about the call and we have no idea where that credit card charge went. I called for the General Manage the next day and was put on hold and no one ever came back . I don't believe the employees showed any dedication towards customer service and choose to make minimal efforts.

The steakhouse food was unbelievable good (except the asparagus--very woody). The service was great and the waiter did a wonderful job for us.

We did not get a great table (do not get the ones next to the bar so loud) but the food compensated for the table location.

We would go back.

It was my birthday and I remembered how good the steaks were when we were at Forbes Mill a year ago. We were all very pleased with the delicious scallops we had for appetizers and the different steaks. I loved the peppercorn dip with my steak. We followed it up with their chocolate mousse, the best I’ace had in years. A wonderful place for a special meal.

We arrived early approximately half hour . Our hostesses asked if we would like to sit at the bar or sit at our table. We thought that was great. We had a lovely evening celebrating my wife’s birthday. Steak and lobster was superb. Drinks were great. Truly a lovely evening

It is a very high-end restaurant with an amazing steak menu. My wife had the surf-and-turf and it was wonderful. The presentation of the lobster was beautiful. And the 16oz blacked rid-eye had just the right amount of spice. Older style decor with dark wood and well-spaced tables so you can hear yourself talk but not hear others' conversations. Very elegant. Some folks are very well dressed. But, being in Los Gatos, you don't have to be "that" well-dressed.
